Armed Citizenry – Samuel Adams

Samuel Adams one of the Founding Fathers of our nation wrote an interesting piece in regard to Militia as opposed to Standing Armies if you click on the link you will be taken to a copy of his treatise.

It is time we understand what the founders meant when the wrote the Second Amendment to our Constitution, this is only one of a number of letters and statements that have been preserved for future generations to understand what was thought and meant by our founders. I hope you will read this and some of the other comments on this website.

Justice Department Report

Breitbart News reports on the new Justice Department Report on gun violence, the report deals with the years 1993 to 2011 and shows the hype of Congress and the Press to be just that HYPE.

During this time period the “Assault Weapons Ban” expired and Americans began to purchase handguns. The Supreme Court overturned outright gun bans and individual states lessened gun control restrictions and issued shall issue carry laws.

During this same time period gun crimes went down, here are some of the stats in this report:
A. Gun related murders dropped 40%; from 18,253 to 11,101. For Black Americans it dropped 51%.
B. School Shootings in this time period dropped by almost a third, from 29 to 20.
C. Background checks is also a straw man that has been made up out of thin air. Less than one percent of state prisoners caught with a gun purchased it at a gun show. Moreover, who knows how many of those might have passed or did pass a background check.

I would suggest that you read the actual report which can be found at: http://bjs.gov/content/p8ub/pdf/fv9311.pdf you will that all of this is not happening in one or two years but rather over the entire period.

I have to say I enjoyed the article written John Nolte. We need to know that an armed populace is a much safer populace. I hope you will read both the article and the report for yourself.

Gun Bill by Cruz and Grassley
April 19, 2013, 3:31 pm
Filed under: Happening Now, Politics | Tags: , , ,

At Townhall.com Kevin glass reports that Grassley from Iowa and Cruz from TX have authored a new gun bill, the difference with this bill is it makes some sense. What these two Senators are trying to have happen is that existing law will be enforced. What a strange idea, that we would actually want the government to enforce the laws already on the books. Of course they also want to restrict the government from another “Fast and Furious.”

One of the things that is supposed to be a part of the NICS system is convictions (felony) and mental illness which has not been reported in many states at all. In the case of the last few nuts who killed innocent folks, they had issues that were never reported. Sen. Grassley is very concerned about this, and said; “I’ve been very interested in the mental health aspect of this debate, so we include provisions to study and address that issue.” Also Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire is co-sponsoring this bill.

These Senators want to improve and reauthorize grants for the NICS database. Require Federal Courts to submit relevant info to NICS, that is a part of wanting the government to support the and enforce laws, it is a shame when the Federal Courts won’t support the law of the land. The also ask that mental health records are submitted to NICS, many States have ignored that requirement. Federal Grant money will not go to states that do not submit mental health records to NICS. Increase fed prosecution of gun violence. Also we need to see prosecution of those people who are caught lying on their statements regarding trying to purchase guns.

There are many other provisions that do not infringe on 2nd Amendment rights, but do place the onus on those who are tasked to provide law enforcement. Also to basically force the DOJ to do the job it is tasked to do, and stop the political focus of prosecution or lack of same.

When I enlisted in the Army in 1962, it was a time when the world was a quiet place, quiet in that there were no threats of violence, such as we have today. There were no terror bombings, no wars. There were of course some things going on as there always are, but not like we see today. When I took my first ets 3 years later, we were embroiled in Vietnam, President Kennedy had been assanated and the world was a different place, Today we are in a world that is very different from that time, I ended up re-enlisting and spent 12 years in the military. My brother is now 100% disabled from Agent Orange and we are both in our 60’s and retired.

The world is much more violent than it was in the 60’s, hatred is a way of life for many in our world. We hear it coming from governments such as Iran and others in the Middle East. We hear it from terrorists who kill women and children and hide behind their own children so that they can continue to kill and maim. In our own nation we find killers going into schools and movie theatres, killing innocent people, because they themselves are not quite right mentally. The government is trying to punish law abiding citizens by destroying the 2nd Amendment to our constitution. As Jefferson said, it is we the people who are vested the power in our country, we are the ones who are to exercise that power, and that it is our right and duty to be at all times armed. I note that these people who have killed innocents in our country, got their guns because they acted illegally, the ones who were mentally disturbed actually were never reported to the proper authority so that they could have purchased their guns. It is the law that felons, and mentally ill are to be reported and added to the no guns list. This was not done and is not today enforced. It is atrocious that our government will allow drug cartels and criminals to have guns, Fast and Furious but will take guns away from the law abiding.

One of the surest ways for tyrants to be able to control the population is to disarm that population so the people cannot fight back. Our nation is rapidly becoming a tyranny, when armed men hiding behind badges can break down our doors and search our homes without warrant, we are living in a police state. When peaceable citizens are routed out of the place they live in the middle of the night by armed men so that they can search our homes, we are living in a police state. We are no longer a free people when so-called law enforcement can send a drone against us to look into our private property, when they can tap into our phone calls and email accounts, we are living in a police state.

Are we that afraid of terrorists that we will allow ourselves to be manhandled before getting on a plane, or stopped while driving from one town to another so we can be asked if we are citizens. I think we have given up too much of our freedom in the face of a perceived threat. Where is the honor in what we are now becoming? This is our Country and we owe her our duty, our honor, but our Constitution guarantees us our freedom and I for one can see no valid reason to allow the Federal Government to steal that from us.

Five Felony Counts?

There is a news story that really bothers me. A wounded Staff Sergeant with 10 years in the military, medically discharged and now working at Ft. Drum in New York State is arrested for possession of 5 magazines for his AR15 which he legally owned, but in New York State, under their old law, you could not have a magazine that would hold more than 10 rounds. Now if you did it was a FELONY now a magazine, that is empty, is just a magazine. Even if it was full of bullets it was still not going to hurt anyone, so, how could this be a felony?

Of course I left New York State in 1976 and have never looked back, it is a haven for leftists and socialists, and being a conservative it was hard to get work in that state. The only time I went back, I did so to bury my Dad and left as soon as possible after the funeral. New York is a depressing place, it is all gray and dingy, where I grew up is now all apartments and parking lots. Cement all over the place, even where we used to play stick ball is gone. The Church I used to attend as a kid growing up, now has an 8 foot high chain link fence around it and a locked gate. Why would anyone want to live in a place where even a church has to be locked behind a fence?

Now at the same time we have this “News” anchor, David Gregory, who knew he was breaking the law in Washington D. C. when he flashed a 30 round magazine on national TV. Of course they will not prosecute him, he is a “Star” and a “Newsman” so he is exempt from prosecution. A wounded veteran, a man who has had his license to carry taken away from him, even though he has not been convicted of any crime as of yet. The sheriff confiscated his handguns, he has sold everything he could so he could pay his legal bills, and they want to put this man in prison for having in his possession 5 magazines with no bullets. Now if he had those magazines on Ft. Drum, he would have been legal, but they arrested him with them as he tried to sell them. It doesn’t say how they knew he was doing that, or where it was that he was trying to sell them.

So, a war hero, wounded in action, and working for the Dept. of Defense as a civilian, is arrested and faces prison time, and if convicted will lose his job even if he doesn’t go to prison, but the suit the “Newsman” who sits behind a desk and reads the news, he can do as he pleases, even break the law and nothing will be done to him. So, isn’t it nice to live in the Socialist Republic of New York? Thank heavens I live in Texas where people are still free to pursue happiness, to carry (concealed of course) and to be able to protect themselves and their property. Of course we do have the Socialist City of Austin, but, we don’t have to go there so I guess it is OK as long as it stays there.

You would think that people would wake up and smell the coffee, that they would begin to see that the government is taking away their rights to be a free people. The Feds are constantly attacking the First Amendment, and ignoring the 10th. They want to put drones in our skies so they can track the movements of people to make sure we aren’t going to do something they don’t like. Our President acts more like a dictator ignoring the congress and ruling by executive orders. Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security Chief has stated that terrorists are those people who are veterans (military), or those who disagree with the government, and those who join the militia. Not only that but these people are stock piling ammunition they have ordered 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point bullets. Hello? What is that all about, WAKE UP AMERICA.

Read an interesting article today

Filed under: Politics | Tags: , , ,

Not that I haven’t read interesting articles every day, just that this one kind of made me realize that there are a lot of things going on that we don’t talk about much. It had to do with women and self protection. Women are called the weaker sex, but that is not always true, sometimes they can be stronger than men. Of course they can always be stronger than we men in some ways, including maturing sooner than boys do.
Of course that is not the gist of the article, it rather has to do with the fact that there are predators out there, and that, “truth be told” a piece of paper that says you will be arrested if you come within 50 feet of this woman, is useless when the perpetrator has come into her space and beat the living hell out of her. This article talks about self defense, and it talks about guns. Now I am a believer in the 2nd Amendment and I think that carrying a gun is not a crime, it is your right as a citizen of this nation.
Now to the article, it does say that the first thing you should do is learn about your options, go to the police and file an order of protection against the person you are fearful of. Then it talks about learning about the legal issues of carrying a gun for protection. Finally it speaks to learning what kind of gun fits you as a woman. Preferably find a woman instructor who will be able to help you with this, and teach you the proper way of using your gun. You also have to go through one other process, that is: Can you use that gun to kill a fellow human being if that is your only choice. That is the one truth that I think too many people don’t think through. If you are going to carry a gun, if the situation is such that you fear for your life, can you kill another human being who is trying to kill you?
Personally, I think that you must be ready to defend yourself and if necessary, to kill the person who is attacking you, why else would you carry a gun, or a knife? If you cannot honestly answer that question in the affirmative, get some pepper spray, or a tazer, do not carry a loaded gun unless you really are ready to use it.
